Latvia Map
Why I Love Latvia
Travel between each of the Baltic States can be done with such ease, so a mix of cities, national parks, castles and so much more are all within easy reach. It is wonderful to experience the different cultures on offer and to soak up the individuality that each country strives for.

Czech Republic Map
Why I Love Czech Republic
I enjoy visiting Prague’s Museum of Communism to get a taste of what it was like to live under 40 years of communist rule. Scenes from daily life, school and the factory depict how persuasive Communism was, with an interrogation room created for citizens who dared raise their heads above the parapet.

Borneo Map
Why I Love Borneo
Borneo is such a friendly country with fantastic opportunities for wildlife encounters. One of my favourite memories is snorkelling on remote Lankayan Island and happening upon a lone green turtle grazing on the seabed. I managed to 'snorkel-stalk' him for quite some time and he was wholly unperturbed - I felt truly privileged to have experienced this.

Mongolia Map
Why I Love Mongolia
I love Mongolia because to watch the sun go down from the top of the whispering sands dunes in the heart of the Gobi Desert is the closest to paradise on earth I have found – no pollution, no noise apart from the gentle whisper of sand shifting in the evening breeze, no traffic just peace, absolute peace.

Russia Map
Why I Love Russia
Visiting both Moscow and St Petersburg is a great start to understanding this complex and intriguing country once described by Churchill as "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma” - so one visit is never enough. Explore Siberian cities on mighty rivers, learn about the battles of Stalingrad in Volgograd and travel the Trans-Siberian to Vladivostok.

Kazakhstan Map
Why I Love Kazakhstan
I recommend spending time in Almaty, a city which seems to be a slice of Russia placed inside a stunning amphitheatre of snow-capped peaks. Explore intriguing bazaars, leafy boulevards and take a stroll in Panfilov Park. Perhaps take a trip to Big Almaty Lake, a stunning turquoise alpine lake. Enjoy steaming plates of “manti” – traditional Kazakh meat dumplings!

Macedonia Map
Why I Love Macedonia
Macedonia is a tranquil country and the perfect place to unwind and reflect. Ohrid is a particularly peaceful town and when I am there I enjoy nothing more than just sitting back on its scenic lakeshores and forgetting about the rest of the world.

Brunei Map
Why I Love Brunei
I love that Brunei has a great range of adventures to enjoy. Embarking on a culinary exploration of the Gadong night market in the capital was a test of my food boundaries and tolerance for sugar - the popular 'teh tarik', local tea heavily sweetened with condensed milk, kept me buzzing for hours! But the highlight was probably travelling to and spending time in rugged Ulu Temburong National Park. Kayaking down the Temborung River and rising early for sunrise from the treetop canopy walkway to the sound of gibbons in the jungle was something I won't ever forget.

Cambodia Map
Why I Love Cambodia
The incredible Khmer temple complex at Angkor is undoubtedly the highlight of any of our Cambodia holidays. The sheer scale of the site combined with the iconic silhouette of the lotus bud-shaped towers and the wonderful bas-relief decoration which has survived since the 12th century make this a very special place to visit.

Lithuania Map
Why I Love Lithuania
Lithuania is the most southerly of the Baltic States and is often referred to as the ‘Land of Amber’, because for centuries, amber, Lithuania’s precious harvest of the sea has been washed onto the golden beaches of Lithuania’s “Amber Coast”. After a storm join the locals in scouring for pieces of amber that is often washed up from the sea.
